We're home, safe and sound. It was a great trip, a wonderful competition, and a great visit with friends. One wag said that going to a Cowboy Fast Draw match is like going to a family reunion, but with people you like. - - With guns. I think that there is a lot of truth to that. The CFDA is a family of shooters that support each other, coach each other and help each other.
Akarate Zach did exceptionally well this weekend, taking second place both in his division in the main match, and second place in his category. In both matches he was up against some very stiff competition, but he handled the stress, put hits on the plate, and keeping the fun going. Zachary can say honestly, and with pride, that he's the second place gunfighter in Texas, and that's something to brag about.
Major D did better than he's ever done in a sactiioned shoot. I stayed alive till the ninth round, against very tough competition. When the gunsmoke cleard and the dust settled, Major D took 15th place overall. Not to shabby against a very trough field, and the Big Thicket Bushwackers are one of the toughest clubs in the country.
Congratulations to the Big Thicket Bushwackers for hosting a really well-run match. It was a lot fo fun and I know how much work they put into it.
We're home now and safe and looking forward to the rest of the competition season. Next up is Oklahoma State in three weeks. We're looking forward to going up and shooting with our Okie friends.
